Spurs 119 (44-8), Heat 101 (29-24)

LaMarcus Aldridge scored 28 points as the San Antonio Spurs took care of the Miami Heat in South Beach on Tuesday night. The visiting team led its host by 24 points during the contest before finally finishing off with an 18-point advantage. Kawhi Leonard added 23 points and 9 rebounds in the win. The Heat were led by Dwyane Wade with 20 points and Chris Bosh with 18.

Wizards 111 (23-27), Knicks 108 (23-32)

Carmelo Anthony (33 points, 13 rebounds) and Kristaps Porzingis (20 points) may have combined for 53 points on Tuesday night against the Washington Wizards, but man, John Wall . The Wiz guard finished with 28 points—11 of which came in the final 3:20 of the game to help seal the road win—plus SEVENTEEN assists. Bradley Beal added in 26 points. Washington led by as many as 16 at Madison Square Garden before the Knicks tried to rally back. But Langston Galloway’s game-tying three-point attempt came up short, and the Wiz walked away with the dub.

Bucks 112 (21-32), Celtics 111 (31-23)

After the Milwaukee Bucks scored 40 points in the third quarter to take a 19-point lead heading into the fourth, the Boston Celtics rallied back with 37 in the final period. Still, the Bucks survived the storm to claim the win. The Bucks bench scored 62 points in the contest, with Greg Monroe (29 points, 12 rebounds) leading the way. Khris Middleton finished with 20 points, including the game-winning free-throw.

Also, Giannis Antetokounmpo is a good time.

Jazz 121 (26-25), Mavericks 119 (29-26) OT

The Dallas Mavericks led this game by as many as 15 points…that is, before the Utah Jazz climbed back all the way for a win on the road. In the final seconds of the fourth quarter, Rodney Hood (29 points) sank a game-tying three-pointer to send the match into overtime. With things still all tied up as the extra period winded down, Gordon Hayward (20 points) hit a game-winning jumper to end it.

Warriors 123 (47-4), Rockets 110 (27-27)

These Warriors…

Stephen Curry scored 19 points in the first quarter alone, on his way to a total 35 points. Harrison Barnes added 19, as the Dubs continue their perfect home winning streak. James Harden led the way for the Houston Rockets with 37, but Golden State was able to keep control at home, outscoring their opponents 30-17 in the final period.
